Workshops and Classes

Bog of Memories (past class)

What do bogs and memories have in common? More than most people think (and I should know having published scientific research about peat bogs).  Please join me for an Inner Geographies workshop where you will learn about peat bogs and brains do (and don’t) store information, use personal mapping as a gateway to memory exploration, create artwork (if desired) that explores your own Bog of Memories, and write creatively about place and memory using targeted prompts and exercises.

When: Saturday, May 4, 2019, from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM

WhereThe Sitting Room (near Sonoma State University campus in Penngrove, CA)

Cost: $25.00

Space is limited.  To reserve your spot please contact River at  A list of materials and some advanced readings will be given to registered participants.
